I have a coworker who will interrupt me while I'm telling a story. He will even finish my sentences for me. Granted, I'm not the best at speaking and may stumble trying to remember a word, but I was wondering how to get him to stop, if it's even possible? There has been a few occasions when he has completed one of my sentences incorrectly and I will say something such as, "No. If you had let me finish I was going to say..."
He is a good friend so I don't want to ruin that and he is an office manager, so I have to be respectful, but it is frustrating to have someone talk over me. Sometimes I will just ignore him and keep talking. One time I even said, "What did you say? I was talking and didn't hear you."
So am I doing the correct thing? How would you handle it? Should I just flat out tell him "You know you have a bad habit of talking over me and I would appreciate it if you would try not to" and if he does, walk out of his office?
Thanks in advance.
